I look at rugs online seriously almost daily. There are just so many out there and so many different colors, patterns, textures, and price ranges. Seriously it can be so overwhelming. When I look though I try and find unique rugs that make a statement either in texture, patter, or color... or all three! I'm not a big fan of simple no big deal rugs... A rug to me should be a piece of artwork for your floor. Something you could design your entire space around.
I know this is an old example... but in Jersey I originally had a plain old olive green rug. It was a quick purchase when my little boy was learning to crawl and it fit the space nicely but I never really loved it. One day I found the black and white tribal rug (you know... THE ONE you've seen eeeeeeeverywhere...) but my gosh look what it did to my living room!!
I'm on the hunt these days for a rug for Christopher's room (I think I'm going to go with the one on the left in the bottom row) and a new one for my den downstairs. Rugs range however from super inexpensive (literally $20 at Ikea...) up to almost as much as an entire set of furniture for your living room! Today though I've found a few of my absolute favorite statement rugs you could design an entire space around, fairly good size, and all less than $200! And those World Market rugs... ON SALE!
But let's really be honest, in a dream world, I'd buy THIS ONE!! Because seriously, it is amazing and the colors would be so perfect in my den. One day right? Like when I don't have two puppies having accidents and two little kids spilling juice. Or maybe when I can talk my husband into spending that on a rug. You know like 20 years? Just kidding... rugs are meant to be lived on right? Just gotta save my pennies for a bit...
